Ubuntu version 14.04.02, have updates on.

I can't seem to build it successfully, any help is appreciated.

  • If possible, replace the screenshot with the copy-pasted command line output. Only then the question can be found by other users with the same problem.

You need to install the development libraries:

  • To solve this: -- Could NOT find Doxygen (missing: DOXYGEN_EXECUTABLE), execute:

    sudo apt-get install doxygen
  • To solve this: PolarSSL not found, execute:

    sudo apt-get install libpolarssl-dev
  • To solve this: -- package 'libnl-tiny' not found and -- package 'libnl-genl-3.0' not found, execute:

    sudo apt-get install libnl-utils

After that, clean the source folder:

cd ~/oomf
make clean

And start cmake again:

cd build
cmake ..

You seem to have a couple of missing dependencies (Doxygen, PolarSSL, libnl-tiny, libnl-genl-3.0).

Before running cmake you should install required dependencies and/or configure the build accordingly to the dependencies available on your system. E.g., it might be possible to build without Doxygen, but other packages might be required.

  • I have installed the apt-get-install libpolarssl-dev package, have successfully installed all packages that you've said, can't seem to find the pollarssl and libnl tiny tho.
